line of defense against rand paul's give me, give me, give me nonsense. i was so wrong. not about the dollars and cents. but about chris christie. he went there today. >> senator paul wants to start looking at where he is going to cut spending to afford defense? maybe he should start to cut the pork barrel defense he sends home to kentucky at $1.51 for every dollars and not look at new jersey where we get 61 cents per dollar, maybe he should look at that before he looks at the federal side. because most washington politicians only care about bringing home the bacon. >> and rand paul foolishly talked about bacon. >> this is the king of bacon, we have two military bases in kentucky. and is governor chris christie recommending we shut down the military bases? he wants to be this great champion of the military? what does he want to do, shut down the military bases? he is making a big mistake fighting with the republicans, because the republican party is shrinking there on the east coast, attacking me is not helping the party, he is hurting the party. >> two military bases in kentucky,

. we do really think that the federal government, it's first priority is defense of this nation. most people think this sequester is not good for our military. how can we substitute some other spending cuts in lower priority areas so we can reinterject those dollars into the military so we don't hollow out our military. >> speaking of common ground, yesterday, the president laid out what the white house is calling a new grand barring gab well as investing in infrastructure and jobs. you have supported some of those things in the past. where do you come down on his plan? >> he's got a framework out there so we'll have to see the details. he's acknowledging we have problems. we have an uncompetitive corporate tax rate that is really stymieing investment. really disincentivizing investment into jobs and business expansion here. we've got at least 1 trillion$1 if not 2trillion of corporate income basically parked overseas. our interstate highway system, we've seen bridges collapse, so we probably do need to spend money on infrastructure. the president got his package that was supposed to

they will issue saying this is the damage that was done when these leaks came out. his defense is going to try to say, no, the damage was not that severe he should get on the lighter end of the sentencing. >> when we think about the advocacy group they are calling this verdict a chilling warning to whistle blowers against whom the obama administration is waging an offensive. do you think he has been properly labeled a whistle-blower or more of a traitor? >> it's a tricky and subjective question. i think that a large amount of the frustration that people have with the way that manning was treated there seems to be a double standard in what the administration thinks is an acceptable leaks. leaks come outlet time but the administration has been one of the most severe if not the most severe in how it responds to leaks it doesn't want to have come out. whether or not he is a whistle bl blower is a subjective qualification. the way the government respond to do what he is what most people are concerned about. >> a grand jury is still investigating wikileaks right now and remaining at a distance of wh

's the issue. >> tony, turning to a slightly different topic, i want to talk about money. secretary of defense hagel was out today talking about the pentagon budget cuts. let's take a listen. >> if sequester-level cuts persist, dod would experience nearly $1 trillion in defense spending reductions over the next ten years. to help dod balance strategic ends, ways, and means under these budget scenarios, the strategic choice of the management review scrutinized every aspect of dod's budget. everything was on the table. >> so, what does this all this mean for what we're doing in afghanistan going forward and our presence there? >> within the past week, there's been a bipartisan, much like the amash vote on nsa. there's been a real moving back towards reducing the funding for afghanistan. now, general dunford is doing his best with the commander of forces there. he's now debating about what we should do in 2014. with that said, he will have a reduced budget no matter what. and i think, frankly, that's the way to go for the most part. we have to be very careful on these choices. on the larger scale

. the defense claimed manning first set out to reveal abuses by the u.s. military in iraq. in a pretrial statement to the court, manning admitted he leaked this classified video of an apache helicopter attack in iraq that killed a number of insurgents and two innocent civilians. and said he was troubled by the american crew joking about the killing. >> the most alarming aspect was the seemingly delightful bloodlust. they appeared to have. for me, this seemed similar to child killing ants with a magnifying glass. >> reporter: in london tonight, julian assange says manning's lawyers will fight his conviction on espionage charges. >> it is a serious precedent. it is a serious abuse. and it will mean the end of national security journalism in the united states as we know it. >> reporter: legal experts predict manning's convictions will have a chilling effect on future leakers. >> the government is very, very serious about protecting the status of classified information. and people who disseminate it are playing with fire. >> reporter: that message could be hammered home when the judge senten
